Tree Artwork Symbolism

Puliima 2015 Tree Logo Small

 

 

The tree is a symbol of antiquity (traditional times) and strength (empowerment of our people).

A tree stump or tree trunk may be used as a symbol of re-growth and rebirth, especially when it is shown with branches spouting new leaves (reclamation and revitalisation of traditional languages).

Trees are nature's warrior, who despite great imbalance in odds, fights to keep a foothold in the most extreme conditions (the fight to keep our traditional languages alive).

A sense of belonging is something many people strive to achieve in a community. The tree with its firm base symbolises that concept of 'roots' and an element of an ongoing relationship with our surroundings (touches on connection to country, our culture, our roots & our Aboriginal heritage).

The drive to find an historic link with our present lives is almost instinctive and propels us forward as if on a quest to attain status and find a reason for being (identity).
